GLYNN COUNTY, GA -- The medical examiner's ruling after a 17-month-old girl died led to murder charges against a man who lived with her.

Thursday night around 7, Glynn County Police got a call about a girl who wasn't breathing.

When they got to the house on Lantana Ct., they found 17-month-old Brianna Hester barely alive.

She was rushed to Southeast Georgia Medical Center, then airlifted to Savannah Memorial Hospital.

Despite all the life-saving efforts, she was pronounced dead a few hours later.

An autopsy determined she died because of trauma to the head.

Monday, police arrested 32-year-old Daryl Keon Jones, who is Brianna's mother's boyfriend.  All three lived together on Lantana Court.

Jones faces charges of murder and cruelty to children.
